Hi, just wanted to say thanks to all the people who answered my questions before my trip to Madeira, just back last night ( boohoo ) and had a lovely time .
Flowercity your help was most valuable and appreciated, particularly the aerobus info.
This is a lovely island and has the best of both with the Oceanic life and the forest and levadas.
I went swimming with Dolphins with Rota dos cetaceos which in truth was the highlight, a fabulous company with conservation high on their agenda, definately recommended. The gardens and levadas lovely and Funchal was more cosmopolitan than I expected.
I'd definately return. And the bus drivers are more skilled than Formula one drivers, an exhillerating experience !
Thanks to you all
